The Good News You Won’t Find on Today’s Front Page

Every day millions of people read a newspaper or watch the news on television. Unfortunately, much of today’s news is not ‘good,’ but depressing. It is easy for us to focus on the bad news each day while completely ignoring any good news. So, just in case you haven’t heard, here’s some good news for you:

God is lovingly concerned with every person — especially you!

He says, “I have loved you with an everlasting love.” Jeremiah 31:3

God sent His Son, Jesus Christ to this earth to die on a cross for the sins of every person — especially yours!

“He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.” 1 John 2:2
 
God freely gives new life to every person who trusts in Jesus Christ for salvation and turns from sin to God.

“For it is by grace that you have been saved, through faith — and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.” Ephesians 2:8

God can give us the strength to obey him fully in our daily lives!

“I can do everything through him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13
 

This is just the beginning! There is much more good news and you will find it in the Bible. One word of caution though. There still is some bad news for those who refuse to believe God’s good news. “Man is destined to die once and after that to face judgment.” Hebrews 9:27. Believe the good news God has for you. Invite Jesus Christ to come into your life as your Savior and Lord. You’ll never hear any better news than this!

A summary of the Good News of Jesus Christ:

Believe Jesus Christ died on the cross for you and rose from the grave.

     1 Corinthians 15:3-4

Admit that you are a sinner. Romans 3:23

Agree to turn from your sin to God. Acts 20:21

Acknowledge Jesus as the leader of your life. Romans 10:9 

Accept God’s free gift of salvation. Ephesians 2:8-9

If you agree with each statement above, then why not say this prayer today?

Jesus, I’ve been running my life. I resign. I believe when you were dying on the cross, you were paying the penalty for the wrong things in my life (my sin). I believe you walked out of the grave and you are alive! Right now I am trusting you to be my rescuer from my sin. Right now I am reaching out to you to rescue me. I want you to be the center of my life. Please make me into the person you want me to be. Thank you for forgiving me. Amen.
